A Green Sanctuary
Being a Green Sanctuary is one of the ways we work toward a vision of healthier, more sustainable future. We invite all who share these values to join us on this journey of connection, sustainability, and hope. If you would like to learn more about Environmental Justice projects or introducing new Green Practices to UUFRC, please contact Debbie Mytels.
As a recognized Green Sanctuary, we live with a deep awareness of our climate crisis and the deep environmental injustices of our time. We commit to four practices, grounded in Unitarian Universalist principles:
We partner with marginalized communities who are hit first and hardest by environmental crisis. In partnering with these communities we are able to address human and environmental needs at the same time.
Worship and Celebration
As we work together towards a cleaner, more just and sustainable world, worship inspires our work and reminds us of what is most sacred and most true.
Our workshops and programs for all ages shape attitudes and build practices that are sustainable and spiritually-grounded.
We treat the world more gently by using fewer resources and being mindful of the choices we make, both as a congregation and as households.
